  • tick1 scoby, rinsed in cool water
  • tick4 litres of filtered water
  • tick5 or 6 tea bags of choice (we love Clipper Teas)
  • tick1 cup golden sugar
  • tick1 cup already brewed kombucha
  • Supplies
  • tick4 litre glass jar/jug (no metal)
  • tick1 muslin cloth or tea towel and string
  • tick1 wooden spoon, not metal


  • Step 1.

    Place the tea bags and sugar in the clean glass jar. Add 2 litres of boiling water. Stir and steep until water has reached room temperature.

  • Step 2.

    Remove tea bags and add the remaining 2 litres of water and 1 cup of kombucha.

  • Step 3.

    Carefully add the scoby into the filled glass jar.

  • Step 4.

    Cover with muslin cloth and tie with string.

  • Step 5.

    Store in a cool, dark place for 7-10 days (more in winter, less in summer). Do Not Disturb.

  • Step 6.

    After 5 days, give it a taste, if it’s too sweet, keep brewing to suit your taste. After 10 days remove tea towel and pour the liquid “Kombucha" into glass bottles with an airtight lid. Store in the fridge and drink chilled. For a ‘stronger’ Kombucha and a bit of fizz, leave these bottles out on the bench for a double ferment.

  • NOte

    For continuous brewing, leave the scoby along with 1 cup of the kombucha in its glass jar. Make the tea and sugar mix in another jar . Once cool, pour it into the jar with the scoby. Change up the tea flavour for different varieties.
